  • ¼ Cup Kosher Salt
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 4 Cups Cold Water
  • 1 orange and 1 lemon sliced


Mix all together so that the salt and sugar dissolves. Add your turkey, and then a lot of ice then refrigerate. Here’s the important part – make sure it’s cold, very cold, just above freezing cold. That helps with the brining process and keeps your poultry safe from bacteria growth.

Brine 4 pounds of meat for 4 hours and a 15-pound turkey for 15 hours. The rule of thumb is about 1 hour per pound of meat.
